We are a leading charity law firm with a genuine understanding of faith-based organisations. Many of our lawyers are actively involved in their own faith communities in a personal capacity and accordingly bring a deep experience of the faith-based sector and the legal issues you are likely to face.

Our clients include organisations applying their faith in a wide range of contexts including: churches (CofE, Catholic and a range of independent denominations), hospices, youth work projects, international development organisations, alms houses and mental health charities. We also advise a large number of faith-based independent schools.

Our areas of expertise include:

  • Charitable status and public benefit
  • Faith-based occupational requirements
  • Safeguarding issues
  • Trustee disputes
  • Data protection
  • Equality/discrimination issues
  • Charity Commission investigations
  • Property acquisition/disposal/disputes
  • Legacies and fundraising
  • Faith-based education
  • Governance issues

We have offices in Richmond, London, Guildford, Southampton, Lymington and Woking. Contact us for more information and expert legal advice.
